True Next Generation Design Philosophy

Since we released the first true PC heat exchangers five years ago, the pursuit of higher performance compact form factor heat exchangers have been the underlying philosophy in HWLabs designs and engineering.

rom the onset we realized the Black Ice® High Performance PC radiators had to break free from the orientation of traditional radiator manufacturers and evolve our designs beyond that of what must define the next generation computer heat exchangers.

The next generation must be ergonomic in the sense that high performance shouldn’t come at distractingly high noise levels. It must retain the dimensions for the sake of easy upgrades and general compatibility. The platform should also be tunable for different requirements of different customers. The radiator itself must also be designed to coincide with a high volume production environment to reduce costs.

And at our own insistence, it was a must that this new platform be made using environmentally responsible materials and processes.

All of that and it has to look and feel that it was made with superior quality with no compromises.

The Black Ice® GT Radiators were designed to be the first true next generation heat exchangers addressing the needs of scalability and customizability for PC water-cooling.


Black Ice GT Standard Feature Set

  • Two-pass pre-cool/aftercool front-rear dual-core flow configuration with a 30% increase in internal flow rates.
  • Custom MaxFin™ 25 micron Copper Splitter Fin Configuration utilizing 45% thinner fin material yielding up to 50% less pressure drop.
  • Unique fin configuration eliminates intra-louver accumulation of dust particles for trouble free operation.
  • Radically optimized 20 FPI (Fins Per Inch) fin density providing dramatically increased heat transfer surface area.
  • Custom low-profile 2-row 19.0 x 1.2mm MaxFlow™ tubes with twice the waterside surface area of the GTS and 60% frontal area reduction for superior low air-resistance aerodynamics and lower internal flow requirements.
  • Yields up to 45% more heat exchange capacity than the Black Ice® Xtreme in both Stealth or Performance modes.
  • Achieves Black Ice® Xtreme level performance in stealth mode (low-noise/low-airflow conditions).
  • M4 Threaded Screw Holes for easier mounting and greater adaptability.
  • Now standard G 1/4″ female threaded fittings.
  • Full high-temper brass structural construction for weight reduction and superior corrosion resistance.
  • High performance compact radiator compatible as an upgrade to the Black Ice® Xtreme and most 120mm form factor radiators.
  • Uses 100% Non-corrosive water-soluble fluxing process.
  • Fully RoHS compliant.
  • Full electrostatic polyurethane painting finish for uniform coating with high temperature curing for increased finish durability.
  • Renowned Black Ice® quality.
  • Patent Pending Design.
